I am dreading 4:00pm as that is when my appointment for Patches is at Dr.Susan Hall's. June is getting a can of tuna for her. I need to show Charles where to dig a hole when he gets home for lunch. I need to also find a blanket or towel for her. Patches is 17, and was the runt. June got her from a man when the mother died after choking on a mouse head. I dont think she was completely weened, but couldnt keep milk or cat-formula down. June took her to Riverside Animal Hospital and was told Patches might live to be 2 or 3. She has always had stomach problems. She has been going-down-hill for awhile and I just dont want her to suffer.
